Location+Price+Condition= a sale! In order to get people to view your house you have to consider the location, condition and price.

First, Check the Appraisal Office in your county- just enter "McLennancad" into GOOGLE, and see what the MARKET price is for your home. A lot of Real Estate Agents are trying to seel property ABOVE current market price, hoping to get a larger comission.
Second, do NOT lower you price - instead bait your OTHER hook - namely the AGENT'S hook. If you had instead offered the "SELLING AGENT" a bonus of $5,000 to sell the home within 90 days of listing your home on the market, I can almost guarantee it would be sold within 90 days - as long as it is in good condition and not missing anything like a bathroom, etc.
